them oisan It Hirrln Journil THURSDAY FEBRUARY 14 1974 LS BOX 789 DECATUR ILL 62525 CarbendaleHerrlnMurphysberc Federal office reports atrocious price gouging Washington AP The Federal Energy Office said today it is directing oil companies to provide more fuel to truck stops immediately and that it has found atrocious price gouging in sales of pro pane gas Deputy FEO Administrator John C Sawhill told a news conference however the FEO is not ready to start shifting gasoline supplies to alleviate shortages and inequities among the states Sawhill said the FEO is sen ding teams to 19 states im mediately to attempt to verify gasoline supply data and to start working wih governors to alleviate problems In other announcements Sawhill said The FEO directed refineries to increase jet fuel production six per cent and to draw from stocks to provide airlines with their fuel allotment this month The FEO in direct checks of customs reports found petroleum imports for last week to be far higher than reported by the American Petroleum In stitute on Wednesday They were running just about at predicted levels of the full im pact of the Arab oil embargo and not some 500000 barrels per day short as the API in dicated The FEO said not enough states and local governments have acted to solve the problems of long lines at gasoline stations It urged them to take steps in cluding sales limitations and perhaps staggered hours to make sure some service stations are open throughout the day The FEO planned to pro pose perhaps Friday an energy information bill to require mandatory reporting of industry information on all forms of energy The FEO also planned to propose next week changes in the mandatory Petroleum Allocation Act governing the distribution of crude oil Sawhill said the act which now requires roughly equal sharing of crude oil supplies among all refiners large and small should be changed to ensure supplies to the in dependent refiners but not to force major companies to transfer supplies among themselves The most anxiously awaited announcement from the FEO the allocation or perhaps reallocation of gasoline supplies among the state did not come today Sawhill said the reason was that the FEO is faced with uncertain data and could not act until it is sure which states are already due to get how much gasoline Only black Victor Rouse resigns from
